NYC Drag Duo Sateen Spreads Hope in “Love Makes the World” feat. Violet Chachki, Amanda Lepore, Merrie Cherry, Aquaria, Ryan Burke & More!

Submitted by on Sunday, 22 January 2017No Comment

Wife and husband drag duo Sateen (Queen Sateen and Exquisite) have a glorious new video for single Love Makes the World (dir. Matt Sparks), off their debut album Greatest Hits (available 1/20 on iTunes). If you live in NYC, you’ve seen these two at pretty much every cool party in town. The Brooklyn-based pop group were compelled to send a message to all the kiddies out there who are feeling disenchanted by the new Donald Trump regime…letting them know that their voices will STILL be heard, and they have a global family on their side. Read the full statement from Sateen below, and watch Love Makes The World, featuring Violet Chachki, Amanda Lepore, Stephanie Stone, Ryan Burke, Merrie Cherry, Rify Royalty, Will Sheridan, Sussi, Aquaria and more!

Sateen:

“When Barack Obama was elected president of the United States, he represented hope for the future. With the election of Donald Trump, that once, bright future now seems bleak. Hatred and bigotry have been given a megaphone, and that is simply not okay. We wrote this song Love Makes the World to everybody that feels hopeless and scared for their future, under the Trump administration. We will rise up, and they will not ignore us. All of us: queer people, trans people, black people, muslim people, Mexican people, lesbian people and gay people… all marginalized people who feel their voice is silenced, We are your family. We love for you and we will fight for you. It is just a song, but it is a start.”
